    I have read the Bible but I am re-reading it because I want true understanding and as I am re-reading through with different eyes I am connected and it seems as if I can visualize these things happening. I can get lost in what I am reading. I have to admit, I had to re-read chapter 49 and I still don't have clarity on it's meaning. I am going to read it again and disect every sentence.

    Jesus is now in Heaven at the right hand of The Father.He sent His Spirit to guide us, give us comfort. He gives His Spirit to all who are Washed by The Blood of The Lamb! Jesus cannot be everywhere at one time He have a Body like us, His Spirit can.The Spirit wil be everywhere all at one Time. He will teach and guide us. We meet to praise Our Lord and to strengthen One another in The Faith. Amen.

    Thomas Colbert, 9/10/'12 - SHILOH was a place in the O.T. that all the people gathered at to hear from God. Shiloh then was a shadow of Jesus, v. 10. Now in this N.T. age we still gather together at 'Shiloh', the church bldg., to hear from God. It's as simple as that. The ch. bldg. is where Jesus is now. He's everywhere at all times, OMNiSCIENT, yet more so when we gather - Hebrews 10:25.

    Jacob cursed Simeon and Levi's anger. This shows he did not approve of their angry and murderous ways in connection with the men of Shechem.

    if we connect luke chapter 19 verse 30 to Genesis 49: 11

    Describling a characteristic that shall be in the tribe of Judah, the donkey's colt represents humbless that our True King Jesus rode in on His way into Jerusalem the Holy City

    what do you guys suppose ?
  • Benjamin for verse 27
    I enjoy the scripture because my name is Benjamin
  • Debra mciver for verse 27
    The word 'as' appears in the King James Version in italics, therefore the verse (27) reads: "Benjamin shall ravin a wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil." 'As' was inserted by the translators but not in the original transcript. It appears that Benjamin is not the wolf he is going after the wolf. That puts an entirely different perspective to the prophecy. The word 'Ravin' means, "To tear in pieces and feed." Therefore I can see both the Apostle Paul and a company of those that tear in pieces false teachings of religion and turn them into food for the hungry; "tearing down everything that would exalt itself against the knowledge of Christ".
  • Ezk 14:14 for verse 27
    A very good description of Apostle Paul. He is the only man who became an Apostle after meeting Jesus in a dream! A very accurate prophecy, and a pharisee! From the trible of Benjamin. It only gets better! From the WOLF he was before.
  • Thomas colbert for verse 10
    name shiloh appears in the bible (kjv) 31
    times. the breakdown is as follows:
    in shiloh- 13 times
    at shiloh- 5 times
    to shiloh 6 times
    of shiloh 3 times
    from shiloh 1
    house like shiloh 2 times
    shiloh comes 1 time
    Genesis 49:10 is the only place where shiloh
    appears to be a person.the hebrew text reads
    para phrase as long as men come to shiloh. the
    jewish encyclopedia gives info as to where
    shiloh is located and what events took place.
    people read jesus into this even though he was
    never spoken of as shiloh
    O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

    Here we see the fruits of our Labors follow us, whether they be for a good or a bad reason.
